The arrest resulted from an incident on Monday, Aug. 28 around 6:20 p.m., when Yorktown Police responded to a two-car crash on Saw Mill River Road in the area of Birdsall Drive, according to the department. 

Arriving officers conducted an investigation into the collision and determined that the driver of one of the cars involved, 55-year-old Putnam County resident Christopher Conlan of Mahopac, had failed to yield the right of way when entering the road, police said.
